Speaking at an event commemorating Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Ocasio-Cortez knocked her own party for not being progressive enough.
"We don't have a left party in the United States. The Democratic Party is not a left party," the freshman congresswoman began, which sparked applause from the audience. "The Democratic Party is a center or a center-conservative party.”
She continued, "We can't even get a floor vote on Medicare-for-all — not even a floor voted that gets voted down. We can't even get a vote on it. So this is not a left party. There are left members inside the Democratic Party that are working to try to make that shift happen."" foxnews
What a great idea! If she finds that she can't take over the present Democratic Party she can start another one taking with her the left wing of the Democrats. I promise to give her money to help with that. The effort ought to divide the left-center forces enough to ensure at least a generation of Conservative rule. pl
